[archive] win$printer in Windows Vista

[Migrated content. Thread originally posted on 02 March 2007]

When using the win$printer WINPRINT-SETUP function in Windows Vista, the button for selecting the printer is now missing.

Has anyone else noticed this?

We are going to need a fix or work-around pretty quickly.

You should report this to technical support.

Funny enough it works with the WINPRINT-SETUP-OLD routine.

I tried WINPRINT-SETUP-OLD and it works for me too.

I think it's a limit in the Windows dialog. I've asked a friend to open the "Word" print dialog and he told me the button doesn't appear there too

Is your friend using office 2003 on Vista? In office 2007 it works fine for me on Vista.

We used the winprint-setup-old and it worked except that the number of copies does not function. Has there been an update to the winprint-setup? Acucorp recommends using winprint-setup-ex which is found in 8.0.0.0 or greater. We have been unable to find winprint-setup-ex in the win$printer in any of our versions, 8.0.0.0, 8.0.1.0.
